Buxton International Festival 2020 CANCELLED at Buxton Opera House, 3–19 July 2020, from £12 - Book now

One of the UK’s leading arts events, Buxton International Festival is a glorious summertime celebration of opera, music and books. Surrounded by the rolling hills of the Peak District, the festival takes place in the spa town of Buxton between the 3rd and the 19th July, delivering a programme of 120 events to 30,000 people. A range of operas, concerts and literary events make up the core programme each year, showcasing rising stars in the arts world as well as internationally-renowned singers, musicians and literary figures.

While the full programme of events has yet to be announced (it will span music and literary events, guided town walks, cooking demonstrations, talks, dinners and even a Festival Tea Garden!), we do have word of the core musical offerings: five great operas. These are La donna del lago by Gioachino Rossini, Ciboulette by Reynaldo Hahn, Acis and Galetea by George Frideric Handel, Violet by Alice Birch and Our Future: In Your Hands by Kate Whitley.

Check back here soon for updates on the rest of the programme!
